Goldfinger – 99 Red Balloons tab

Song: 99 Red Balloons
Band: Goldfinger

EMaj          F#m
You and I in a little toy shop
buy a bag of balloons with
the money we've got
EMaj               F#m
Set them free at the break of dawn
     A           B
'Til one by one, they were gone
EMaj         F#m
Back at base, bugs in the software
A                  B
Flash the message, "Something's out there"
EMaj           F#m
Floating in the summer sky
A  B
99 red balloons go by.

II (Do the same chords)
99 red balloons floating in the summer sky
Panic bells, it's red alert
There's something here from somewhere else
The war machine springs to life
Opens up one eager eye
Focusing it on the sky
As 99 red balloons go by.

III (Do the same chords)
99 Decision Street, 99 ministers meet
[ Find more Lyrics at ]
To worry, worry, super-scurry
Call out the troops now in a hurry
This is what we've waited for
This is it boys, this is war
The president is on the line
As 99 red balloons go by.

IV (Do the same chords)
99 Kriegsminister
Streichholz und Benzinkanister
Hielten sich fuer schlaue Leute
Witterten schon fette Beute
Riefen: Krieg und wollten Macht
Mann, wer haette das gedacht
Dass es einmal soweit kommt
Wegen 99 Luftballons

V (Do the same chords)
99 dreams I have had
In every one a red balloon
It's all over and I'm standin' pretty
In the dust that was a city
If I could find a souvenier
Just to prove the world was here...
And here it is, a red balloon
I think of you and let it go.
